Great cruise experience

Sail Date: January 04, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Norwegian Spirit was a beautiful ship, and we were pleasantly surprised at how well maintained it was.

Pros: Freestyle dining was terrific!

Cons: The craps table had a $10.00 limit

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!

Food and Dining
We enjoyed the freestyle dining. We had our dinners in Windows each night and rarely had to wait for more than a few minutes to be seated. We had lobster two nights, and being able to choose Cooking Light dishes was a plus.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony stateroom and thought it was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The only negative was a lack of drawer space. Our room was located near the elevators, which made getting around more convenient.
Service and Staff
We found the staff very friendly and helpful. We had expected poor service in the dining rooms because of the freestyle dining, but all of our servers were very attentive.
The entertainment offered was excellent. We attended several of the shows and were impressed with the quality. We wish we had been aware of the $10.00 limit on the crap table, as we would have chosen a different cruise if we had known. This was our ninth cruise and the first time we've run into more than a $5.00 limit.
Ship Quality
We thought the ship was well maintained, and the decor was more attractive than we had expected.

Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
We loved Guatamala and would return there! We took a tour through the area and learned quite a bit about the country from our driver.
